A Conversation with the Reverend Jesse Jackson: The Quest for Economic and Educational Parity.
American Enterprise Inst. for Public Policy Research, Washington, DC.
This booklet contains an edited transcript of a visit by the black civil rights leader to the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) in May 1978. Reverend Jackson addresses issues that go beyond the freedoms won in the civil rights movement toward the goals of educational and economic parity for all Americans. AEI scholars and fellows, representatives of the media, and representatives of the Ford Foundation and Mobil Oil Corporation question Reverend Jackson on the state of black America. Topics covered include: (1) the black vote and politics; (2) the moral authority of the media in the absence of blacks in executive positions with newspapers and television; (3) economic development of urban areas and job creation; (4) the income gap between blacks and whites; (5) foreign policy, particularly in Africa; and (6) affirmative action for minorities and the question of reverse discrimination.
